Get Snapping - Lomography's La Sardina

Sardines. Now, isn't that something that will get your creative juices flowing? No? Well our friends over at Lomography can source inspiration in pretty much anything, and yes, that does include Sardines.

The La Sardina camera, the design of which is based around the style of sardine tins, is one of the latest in the long line of analog offerings from our favourite photography brand. This quirky little user-friendly camera is easy to use, takes 35mm film and is compact enough to carry around with you all day, every day. That, and the fact that this Lomo has a wide-angle lens that'll capture everything around you makes it a real winner, right? You're probably about to head over to lomography.com and take a closer look, right? Well hold up, it gets better...

Now available in a range of new patterns, you can ensure that your La Sardina is as cool as you are. With 4 finishes to choose from in the 'Pattern' range: Cubic, Quadrat, Domino and Mobius, along with the original La Sardina sardine-can designs, there's really a Sardina to suit every taste. And if your taste is a bit more caviar than tinned pilchards, then these brass-coated beauties from the Heavy Metal edition are for you...

Cubic & Quadrat cameras (with flash) - £99
Domino & Mobius cameras (without flash) - £55

Beluga & Czar Brass-coated cameras - £149

Nicholas Kirkwood x Keith Haring.

This collaboration isn’t new, but it is definitely too good not to feature – It had us Tantrum girls drooling! Back in May, one of our favourite shoe designers, Nicholas Kirkwood teamed up with The Keith Haring Foundation, showcasing a rather bold range of shoes, inspired by 80s street culture.

Sculptural footwear has become an innovative trend, and we absolutely love the designs. Patterns and motifs were taken from Haring’s work and applied to an array of architectural styles. Pop-Art prints promoted subjects including AIDS activism and awareness as well as safe sex; a pair of knee-high boots emblazoned Swarovski crystals and rollerblade wheels – 

unfortunately these beauties were only for display.

We love the relationships between fashion and art; it is so inspirational and fun. The one-off couture collection is available at the Nicholas Kirkwood store on Mount Street, London.

“I’ve grown up with Keith Haring’s work around me. It’s so ubiquitous; you saw it before you even knew it was art. The bold colours, defined shapes and edges–that aspect of it, to me,
made it perfect for a shoe.” – Nicholas Kirkwood

Introducing: Wilma & Winston

We just love coming across quirky new online boutiques. Don't you? Every so often we find one that we just need to share with all you beauts and that's just the case with Wilma & Winston. Founded in 2010, W&W is driven by street-inspired clothing and focus on showcasing one-off pieces - whether they're vintage, up-cycled, handmade or manufactured by W&W themselves.


Inspired by vintage, 'dirty-chic' grunge, rock, punk and acid-wash (all of which we just so happen to be huge fans of!) W&W's pieces are carefully chosen for their originality and style and have a focus on the teeny-tiny details, like the colour of stitching and the shiney-ness of buttons that most people can often overlook.


So be sure to head over to Wilma & Winston's online store and see what little gems you could uncover! From unique vintage finds to handmade W&W originals, you're sure to find something you'll fall in love with!

Get your nails into beetlejuice.

We're absolutely L-O-V-I-N-G these new nail-polishes from Models Own, they look so nifty and we just can't wait to get our nails into them! (See what we did there, eh?) You've got a mix of four for the price of one, and with five (Golden Green, Pinky Brown, Purple Blue, Aqua Violet and Emerald Black)  to collect there's an endless amount of designs just waiting to be created!

Each pearlescent shade gives a sleek, chrome-like finish - all inspired by the wings of a beetle. Models Own are offering great discounts on their website where you can get three polishes for £12 or five for £18; considering they're usually £5 a pop, it's a definite go-and-buy-now offer.

We love them and can't wait to experiment. Are you considering the purchase? We say DO IT!

Esty store spotlight: Cakeeater

Now, we're huge fans of all things kitsch, and so upon trawling through the online wonderland
that is Etsy, we were pretty psyched to come across these amazing handmade pins by Cakeeater.

Available in a range of colours and words, from 'creep' to 'doll', 'witch', 'teen dream' and 'alien she' (you can even put in custom requests to have a truly individual pin!) These heart-shaped beauties are lovingly handmade, painted in cute pastel shades and finished with a glittery topcoat.

Cakeeater is the brainchild of Seattle-based designer/illustrator/crafter, Natali Wiseman who makes "things that are cure and/or spooky". She's inspired by her love for candy colours, riot grrrl, fancy desserts, '60s kitsch, movies about teen schoolgirls, glitter and the pastel toys she had as a kid.

Natali's pretty rad, huh? And you know what, her Etsy store is too! Go have a little browse and see what other little gems you find!
